Little, symmetric objects of metal that fell at Orenburg, Russia, September, 1824.
A second fall of these objects, at Orenburg, Russia, Jan. 25, 1825 (Quar. Jour. Roy. Inst., 1828-1-447).
The objects of Orenburg were described as crystals of pyrites, or sulphate of iron. Arago's account of these occurrences (OEuvres, 11-644) gives 70 per cent. red oxide of iron, and sulphur and loss by ignition 5 per cent. Thus little, rusty iron objects, have fallen, four months apart, at the same place. M. Arago expresses astonishment at this phenomenon of recurrence.
